Christmas menu: Pandoro Truffles… your just dessert!

Looking for a different Christmas dessert? Try some pandoro truffles. Mouthwatering colored cake balls with delicious chocolate to crown your meal… and more! The recipe is quick and easy: why not give it a try?

Pandoro truffles make a great alternative to Italian classics like panettone and pandoro.  Lively, irresistible and original, these cake balls will surprise and delight family and friends at Christmas. You can use your imagination to cover them with grains that give each truffle a different color. Nut grains are also an excellent source of beneficial monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Another healthy practice is to always use top quality ingredients: as well as being more healthy, they’re also more delicious.

But let’s get back to our recipe… an original Christmas dessert that’s also suitable for post-Christmas use, when the house usually contains plenty of leftover pandoro. So why not transformed that into these delectably sweet nibbles? Once you’ve made them, be generous and share them with your acquaintances. How? Wrap them in highly colorful oven paper and then put these inside matching boxes as gifts for friends and colleagues. You’ll offer them all (along with yourself) a pleasure that makes the post-Christmas return to work unexpectedly… sweet.

Recipe for Pandoro Truffles – Crowning the Christmas Menu


  • 200 gr of pandoro cake
  • 100 g white chocolate
  • 1 cup of espresso coffee
  • 150 gr of dark chocolate
  • pistachio grain
  • hazelnut grain
  • coconut flour


Break the pandoro into crumbs and place them in a bowl.  Add the melted white chocolate and the coffee. Stir until you obtain a compact mixture. Gather small amounts of the mixture and shape them by hand one at a time into small balls roughly the size of walnuts. Position them on a plate covered by baking paper. Now melt the dark chocolate in bain-marie or in a microwave. Immerse the cake balls entirely in the melted chocolate and place them one by one on a plate covered with baking paper. Sprinkle them while still warm with nut flakes, including pistachio or hazelnut grains or coconut flour. Make sure the dark chocolate has completely hardened before you serve your pandoro truffles.
